Last week I blogged about the IRS extending the 2020 tax deadline from April 15 to July 15. Then, later in the week, a blog was made about the IRS extending additional deadlines from between the dates of April 1 through July 14 to the new deadline of July 15. At that time, I noted the IRS had extended the business return for nonprofits (990-T), but they hadn’t extended the other exempt organization forms that are required to be filed by May 15. Fortunately, today the IRS sent out further guidance stating that the various nonprofit forms due between April 1 and July 15 are extended. This is great news for nonprofit organizations having to file a Form 990. 

Here are the additional forms being extended by today’s IRS notice. I’ve copied this out of the IRS email since they don’t have their website updated with this information yet.

  • Form 990-series annual information returns or notices (Forms 990, 990-EZ, 990-PF, 990-BL, 990-N (e-postcard))
  • Forms 8871 and 8872
  • Form 5227
  • Form 990-T
  • Form 1120-POL
  • Form 4720
  • Form 8976

Right now, I think it is pretty safe to assume that almost any filing due to the IRS between April 1 and July 14 has now been extended to July 15. If there are more updates, I will post them here. Stay tuned!
